The Unbridled Paintings of Lawrence Lebduska

THE UNBRIDLED PAINTINGS OF LAWRENCE LEBDUSKA presents the rare opportunity to exhibit the notable paintings of Lawrence Lebduska, one of the most popular modern folk-art painters of 1930s America.

This exhibition resents the rare opportunity to exhibit the notable paintings of Lawrence Lebduska, one of the most popular modern folk-art painters of 1930s America. Lebduskaʼs dreamlands and invented gardens teem extraordinarily with life and optimism in a nostalgic, uncorrupted style that captured the admiration of the American public.

Lebduska was an outsider artist who navigated the intensifying New York art scene without the academic trainings and institutional tenure of his contemporaries. Competing with the rise of the avant-garde modernist movements that seized the art historical world in New York and abroad, Lebduskaʼs intrinsically painted Edens of bucolic farms, city parks, and remote jungles propelled the artist and his work to celebrity among galleries, collectors and museums. Lebduska earned his first solo show in 1936 at the Contemporary Gallery in New York City nearly selling out his works, a show known to have ignited the folk-art collections of Abby Aldrich
